I just did an estimate for a guy today. He said he's been using a guy for many years, but "He's just not doing the lawn the way I ask him to lately."
"I told him to cut it shorter, but it still looks the same", he said to me.
"Hmmm..." I thought to myself...
BIG. RED. FLAG.
Then when I asked if he was looking for weekly service, or every other week, he said, "Well, just cut it when it needs it... a week, week and a half..."
I gave him a price, and told him I only
work weekly, or biweekly, but I think I'm calling him and saying "no thanks" before he fires his guy and calls me!
